I'm 50 years old, working often from home as an independent language teacher for private companies, living in the center of Belgium close to Brussels which is very interesting to visit. I'm a social person who likes to meet with people, make new friends, share experiences and cook to share a meal together. I also like to do some walks in the nice nature that is around. The location where I live is ideal for exploring both culture (Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp) and nature (pajottenland, castles, …)
I'm quite spititual and creative having been refurnishing my kitchen and dining room in the past year. However, some help would make me very happy to finish the rest of the house by arranging the attic, painting 2 rooms and cleaning up the garage and cellar. making wooden furniture and painting 2 rooms.
I would also appreciate some help with putting things to sell on the internet.
My brother (3 sons) lives in Antwerp, my sister (2 doughters) lives in Paris.
My only son is studying aerospace ingeneering in the Nederlands and likes to come home during the weekends.
You can learn about building with wood, learning languages: French, Dutch and exploring several very interesting medieval cities.
I would be very glad to meet through skype to know you!
